Maui Helicopter Tours

A Maui helicopter tour will take you on an adventure that makes theme park rides and IMAX theaters seem mundane.

Our first helicopter tour on Kauai way back in 1985 convinced us. This is the way to view the Hawaiian islands.

Just about nothing compares to the exhilaration of riding in a helicopter and viewing the beauty of the Hawaiian volcanoes and coastline from above.

But there is a catch. Helicopter tours, on a per hour basis, are expensive. So we save up our money, and go on one when we can afford it.

Some Maui helicopter tours also go to the striking coastlines of the nearby islands Molokai and Lanai.

Most start at Kahului heliport, and fly over areas like the Maui volcano Haleakala, the sights along the road to Hana, and west Maui.

Some of the Maui helicopter tours include a DVD of your flight, including conversations between you and the pilot.

Maui Helicopter Tour Cost

A Maui helicopter tour cost varies based on how much of the island of Maui you are overflying, the time you are in the air, and whether you are flying to the nearby islands Lanai and Molokai.

Kids normally don't get a discount - they take up a seat just like an adult. That adds up if you're taking the family along.
